Description: 
Airborne Ranger is a computer game released in 1987 by MicroProse. The game is a military simulation game in which a sole airborne ranger is to infiltrate enemy territory to complete various objectives. The game consisted of several missions in which the player controlled a sole airborne ranger who had things to do from killing an enemy officer, take out an enemy bunker, or even take out a SAM-site. At the start of each mission the player is presented with a short overview of the mission. At the start of the mission, the player can select a ranger from a roster of soldiers. The player is then in control of an aircraft and is allowed to drop three ammo crates over the enemy territory. Once the three containers are dropped the ranger is parachuted into the area. Upon touch down the player has to overcome several obstacles as enemey soldiers and officers, mine-fields, foxholes and bunkers. Due to limited ammunition the player needs to plan his path through the territory. The dropped ammo crates provide the soldier with fresh grenades and ammo. After completing the mission the ranger has to navigate to a pick-up point without being killed. The ranger has to reach the pick-up point within a timelimit. If the ranger is captured (but not killed), the player can start an optional rescue mission using another soldier from the roster. The game created the maps and objective locations randomly so the player is required to plan each mission carefully because no mission is the same.
